We had a lovely night out, although the Light and Sound show was a bit disappointing,
However we were taken to a great restuarant for dinner after the show which was worth the ticket price alone.

Very good service, and good night experience of the Red Fort with sound and light. Dinner was good too with a variety of vegetarian and non vegetarian Indian cuisine. Good guide who stayed with us all the time from the hotel and back.

Not only was Ashish a thoughtful and punctual guide, he also made us laugh. We enjoyed seeing the fort and eating a delicious meal without having to worry about details. We loved the opportunity to meet Ashish and speak with him about India and its customs and culture. We highly recommend this tour Only complaint - Ashish should have made the full moon rise earlier in the light show.

We participated in the evening Red fort light show tour. Our experience was wonderful. We were able to experience Old & New Delhi in the evening with the safety pf the tour company. The evening light show was very interesting & provided us with a lot of history & a wonderfull colorful spectacle. Our host, Ashish, was very knowledgeable, polite & competent in his work. We enjoyed his company & his stories very much. The tour was superb! The only thing I can think of that I would have recommended is that we thought that dinner was first - so we would have had a snack first! We are very happy with the restaurant & are looking forward to the delicious food! Thank you!

Really liked the service. Ashish came to us as a professional & a gentleman. The company was very comfortable & trip was amazing. The Restaurant was very nice & enjoyed the food. The surrounding made us quite comfortable. Thank you for your prompt response.

Great sound show. It told about the history of India. A lot of things I didn't know. Dinner was superb. Great tour guide as well. The only thing I would improve on would be the light show but that is out of the hands of viator.

The light show was less than outstanding, but it was a fun and interesting way to learn about the history of the Red Fort. The dinner afterward at the Broadway was top notch! More food than we could eat and delicious beyond expectations! Our guide was very helpful and kind.

Lovely experience; I've much enjoyed the company of Ashish throughout and the choice of restaurant, (great food and beautiful deco). The Red Fort was a magical setting for the Light and Sound show... I was however late and only managed to see part of it... yet it was nicely put together.

It was cold on the evening we went to the show. The guide and driver were pleasant but even though we found it hard to understand the guide sometimes, he did a good job of explaining the history of the Red Fort. We were taken to a very nice restaurant afterwards. The evening was enjoyable but I think it would be helpful to tell the guests to bring a coat or sweater.

The Red Fort is impressive. We liked the tour and the show it was ok but not great. Not too many people and lots of bugs and humidity. What we did like was the guide and the dinner. The food was great and this tour allowed us to experience a little bit of Delhi we probably would not have seen otherwise.

This is a very nice introduction to India. We saw it on our first night and it basically gave a broad overview of the history of India. After that, we were able to understand the rest of our tour better because we can always reference something from the show to tie it to an event that we learned about during one of our tours. If you can, it is a great way to start a visit to India.

A beautiful spectacle but pales compared with similar sound and light shows at other world sites, however our charming host/guide who also accompanied us to the wonderful included Indian dinner made for a great companion whose informative discourse enlivened the whole evening! A very relaxing and pleasant way to spend a night in Delhi!

Light show was good but not as dynamic as expected. The car, guide and dinner were excellent however.

Good experience of the red fort and highlights of the Indian multi-layered history. No music, only sound. January is a very cold month, and the cold definitely affected our enjoyment big time as we were struggling to stay warm.

Turns out I was the only person on this tour, which was disappointing and a bit nervewracking given it was my first visit to India and I am a single female. It should have been made clearer in the event description that this was a private visit with a guide. it should also have been stated clearly that dinner would be after the show and not start until 9:30 pm . Finally there was no choice given as to the dinner menu - it was predetermined. This should have been stated clearly. Finally the restaurant staff did not make it clear that water was extra and I would be charged - I think this really should have been covered by the guiding company.

Due to my plane coming in late I missed the actual Red Fort Light and Sound part, although the dinner and private transfer were both good.

We were very disappointed with this activity. I don't necessarily blame Viator for our experience. I didn't review this activity very closely and was under the impression that this was a dinner/show. It was not. The Sound and Light show was simply sitting in one spot within the Red Fort and listening to commentary as a light bounced around from one building to another. We left halfway through the show. We were then taken to a nice restaurant afterwards. The meal was the best part of the evening. The food was good and plentiful. On the whole, I would not recommend this activity. I'm confident you can find a very nice restaurant to eat at on your own for much less.

This tour was a waste of time and money. They (guide and driver) were 1/2 hr. late picking us up from the hotel. In addition, they gave us the wrong time, too early by an hour, so we ended up waiting 1.5 hours. The driver had no idea of where to drop us and we had to stumble around in the dark. The Sound and Light show is lame and I don't recommend it. After the show, which ends at 9:30 pm, they take us to dinner, saying that 'dinner' in India is typically at 10 pm (WRONG). The guide rushed us through dinner, incessantly taking cell phone calls and rudely talking right in front of us. The guide (Abi) gave us no history or discussion of what we were seeing. He left us alone during the show
